Article on Examining the Legal Implications of Making a Will Vis a Vis the Appointment of a Next of Kin
Timilehin Edun recently published an article entitled, Examining the Legal Implications of Making a Will Vis a Vis the Appointment of a Next of Kin, Wills, Trusts, & Estates Law ejournal (2020). Provided below is the abstract to the Article.
The general notion attached to the making of a Will is death. The purport of this misconception is premised on the view that a Will is made in anticipation of a person’s demise albeit false. More often, people fail to realize that a Will is a testamentary document stating/itemizing the intention of the maker in the event of his demise. Therefore, nothing indicates that the maker of a Will is going to die immediately after preparing the document rather, what a Will does is to help is clearly. This short article examines the legal implication of making a valid Will, how beneficiary is not the same as Next of kin in the eye of the Law and lastly how the making of a Will is not a death pronouncement.
